With v.71, we are thrilled to announce the much anticipated new Device Tree. It offers a compromise between the traditional tree originally featured and the one-level-at-a-time model in the current UI. We think it’s the best of both worlds. This release also brings the promised Table Widget, providing a customizable way to display any variety of datapoints in an easy to scan table. More services improvements, such as ad hoc trace route for ping checks, and new PagerDuty and Slack integrations are also included.
You know what it is, and why it needed updates, so here’s an overview of the changes:
Sometimes numbers, lots of numbers, are what really matter. The table widget enables you to easily compare metrics across devices. This requires a bit of configuration on your part, but we think you’ll find it worth the effort.
During configuration, you can add any number of devices as rows. You will need to assign a name, datasource(s), and datapoint(s) for each column. While each column will only display one value per device, the configuration allows you to compare similar datasources, such as WinCPU and NetSNMPCPU, across devices. This allows you to evaluate performance, capacity, and risk across different device types.
PagerDuty and Slack are now available as in product integrations, allowing alerts to be sent and updated real time based on alert severity and device performance.
Along with recent HTML and architecture improvements, the reports page has been updated. This includes:
As a result of the changes, the toggle UI button will no longer be available for reports.
Note: Those datasource wizards among you may notice a batch script collector option. This has a EA collector dependency and will be covered in the collector release notes.
